"The Black Waltz EP is a concept I came up with while playing Final Fantasy IX in the wee hours of the night. The story line involves a golem like character called The Black Waltz, who's only purpose is to kill. As he is on his mission to kill Princess Garnet he has a short circuit and questions his existence. I found this very interesting and I enjoyed the sound track of the game itself. I knew I had to recreate these feelings of lost purpose and misdirected intentions that the character was having. Kuja, the main villain in this tale, is also similar to The Black Waltz. He is an evolved creature of immense power, but a limited life span and no free will of his own. He rebels against his master for his own freedom only to destroy himself. This is a struggle I deal with on a day to day basis. That is why The Black Waltz is the only dance I know.
